    At first they are hatchlings but how exactly do they grow?
    They are robotic organisms but their metal isn't exactly earth metal but alien cybertonian metal. I don't think it's the same thing. Do they have some kind of metal skin that grows like an human organism or do they keep upgrading with parts?

    I ask this because I first thought of this when in DOTM Megatron fed whatever it was to the little hatchlings like they were little growing organisms.

    Like c'mon with these questions now. What is this forum now a transformers encyclopedia. What questions are next

    How many faces has Prime collected since the start of the war?
    Does Ironhide polish his cannons?
    Where to does Ratchet always go when **** hits the fan.
    Does Que straighten his hair.
    Does Dino come from a line of Italian transformers?
    Has sideswipe considered a career in roller derby after the war?
    How does bumblebee read bedtime stories to NEST troops?
    Did skids and Mudflap acquire an invisiblity cloak for DOTM?
    How come the wreckers have NASCAR alt modes but foreign alt modes?
    Who does Wheelie hump now that Mikalea is gone?
    If brains can access top secret info, then how come NEST DOESN'T use him?

    They aren't really made of metal, it is metallic but not actually metal. They're technically not robots or machines, they're living, growing, organisms. They talked about Scorponok's tail in the first movie, I believe they mentioned how it was "healing" or something. So they have flesh, while very similar to metal, it's not quite.

    In addition, they also seem to have blood of some sort. This is most prevalent when Grindor's face is being split apart and when the Dreads were being killed, with red fluid spewing out onto the road. And let's not forget the constant spitting, such as with Jetfire and Starscream.

    That's all lubricant and oil, which simulates robotic "blood" and "saliva"...energon has been stated to be the lifeblood of the transformers.
